Apple partner BOE will supply the OLED displays for the fourth-generation iPhone SE, which is expected to be released next year, according to Apple the electr.

China-based BOE has reportedly missed initial volume of OLED panels for this year’s iPhone 15 series due to production issues, with Samsung and LG taking the majority of orders. Now they want to make up for that by focusing on the production of OLED panels for the affordable iPhone SE 4. The volume of OLED panels for the iPhone SE 4 is estimated at around 20 million in the next year.

Rather than applying new specs, the iPhone SE 4 is expected to use the OLED stock that was originally present for the 2021 iPhone 13 or 2022 iPhone 14. “It makes sense for Apple to optimize the component inventory since it’s an entry-level product,” adds the machine-language Korean report.

Apple has resumed development of a fourth-generation iPhone SE with a 6.1-inch OLED display and an Apple-developed 5G chip, according to information provided by renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo last month has shared.

According to Kuo, the new iPhone SE will be similar to the standard iPhone 14, which will feature a 6.1-inch OLED display with thinner bezels. The current iPhone SE comes with a 4.7-inch LCD display with thicker bezels.

Following the report on Kuo, respected display analyst Ross Young called he had heard that the iPhone SE 4 will use a BOE OLED panel, and today’s report confirms that information.
